Did Joe Biden Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs?!

Did US President Joe Biden ban religious-themed Easter eggs, and Christian symbols at the White House Easter egg roll?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Joe Biden Banned Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

Some people are claiming or suggesting that US President Joe Biden banned religious-themed Easter eggs, and Christian symbols at the White House Easter egg roll!

Kristi Noem : Biden and the Democrats decided Easter – the Holy Day of our Savior’s Resurrection – as transgender day of visibility. There is no length Biden and the Democrats won’t go to to mock your faith, and to thumb his nose at God.

Rep Andy Biggs : “Devout Catholic” Joe Biden banned religious symbols from the White House’s Easter egg art contest. He’s recognizing Easter as Trans Day of Visibility instead of one of the holiest days on the Christian calendar.

Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created or promoted by right-wing American and Christian conservatives, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Did Not Ban Religious-Themed Easter Eggs!

This is really silly, but let me just point out that US President Joe Biden did not ban religious-themed Easter eggs in the White House Easter Egg art contest, or at the White House Easter Egg Roll.

What these right-wing American and Christian conservatives are apparently so outraged about is a flyer (PDF) calling for children in National Guard families to submit artwork for Easter eggs. Selected designs would then be painted onto real hen eggs by talented egg artists and displayed at the White House.

The flyer called for children to draw a “snapshot of their life“, but asked that their artwork must not contain include “questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements“.

However, those submission guidelines have nothing to do with Joe Biden, Jill Biden, or the Biden Administration.

Fact #2 : Easter Egg Art Rules Set By American Egg Board

The eggs for the White House Easter Egg Roll event, as well as the Easter Egg art contest, are all sponsored by the American Egg Board. It is the American Egg Board that created those rules as the Sponsor.

It is clearly stated in the flyer that the Sponsor (American Egg Board) decides on the guidelines, and decides on the submissions.

[The] Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may remove any Submission and disqualify an entrant if it believes, in its sole discretion, that the entrant’s Submission fails to conform to the Guidelines and Restrictions.

In addition, the flyer also states that participants will grant the Sponsor (American Egg Board), the right to use their artwork, and collect their personal data. It also referred participants to the American Egg Board’s privacy policy.

In short, the White House Easter Egg art contest rules were issued by the American Egg Board, not Joe Biden, Jill Biden, or the Biden Administration.

Fact #3 : Those Rules Were Used For Last 45 Years!

What’s even more damning is the fact that the non-discrimination language used in the American Egg Board flyer has been used for the last 45 years, across many administrations both Republican and Democrat.

After many right-wing American and Christian conservatives vented their bile on social media, White House Deputy Assistant to President Joe Biden, Elizabeth Alexander, pointed out this hypocrisy:

Fyi on all the misleading swirl re White House and Easter: the American Egg Board flyer’s standard non-discrimination language requesting artwork has been used for the last 45 years, across all Dem & Republican Admins—for all WH Easter Egg Rolls —incl previous Administration’s.

If those right-wing American and Christian conservatives did not find them offensive the previous 44 years, So why the outrage this year???

Fact #4 : This Is Just Joe Biden Fake News

This is ultimately just another example of fake news created about Joe Biden, like these other examples:
